Tell us about your show.
‘Cloud Avenue’ is a multimedia puppet show from the University of Manchester Drama Society. The play is the brain-child of Cara Looij, an incredibly talented writer, storyteller and puppeteer. Cara makes all the puppets herself (predominantly from recycled materials) and they are used to tell the story of Violet, a girl who has had the ability to travel back in time from a young age.
The show explores childhood imagination through these puppets, along with incredible video art and an original soundtrack from electronic artist ZOU. The show premiered in Manchester in February, where it won three Manchester In-Fringe Theatre Awards. ‘Cloud Avenue’ challenges the idea that family-appropriate theatre must be dumbed down and cannot be challenging or experimental, whilst remaining accessible.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
No Show at Summerhall – life-changingly amazing circus performers putting on a hilarious and fascinating look into the industry.
